This is the padlocked door of a shop, closed for the day, but through my eyes it’s a gorgeous palette of peeling blues and yellows and oranges.
I’ve been trying to work out what the word, in Hindi, in the top left corner of the photograph is. The first letter, one of my favourites, is ‘ka‘ (K), and the last is ‘la‘ (L). The single stroke in the middle is ‘aa‘ (a long A) so I think the word is kaal, which means time. The little curve above the line has got me puzzled, though, and I can’t work out what it is. Hindi speakers – help!
